    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

I have a small refund due (Lloyds Annual Cashback earned) sitting as a credit on my recently closed C/Card a/c.

 

Lloyds refuse to issue me the chq. value UNTIL I disclose A/C details of my non-Lloyds a/c which I intend to deposit it in, quoting Money-Laundering regulations!

 

(In-house new rule w.e.f. 23/12/22 apparently; also claiming Cheque is the only method by which they'll pay me it!).

 

It's a ridiculous rule in my book.

What I do with MY money is NONE of their business after they've issued the cheque. 

 

Has anyone else come across this?

So far, I've complained and am waiting for their response letter.

 

I asked that they make it a Final letter to enable me to go straight to the FOS.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

What value are we talking about here?

Additionally, although I agree with my site team colleague's assessment that it might be better to be cooperative, there is no doubt in my mind that the bank is not entitled to this information. They are a bunch of bullies. They have their own rules in place and they expect everybody to abide by them.

If you don't want to provide this information then I expect we can help you.

However I think we will need more details – a brief history of what has happened, why this happened and also as I understand that your account is now closed – how this happened

Hi dx100uk

- in response -

 

On principle! I feel Lloyds are the Obstructive organisation here!

They DID transfer another credit to my new (non-Lloyds) current a/c in Nov

-they just refuse to do the same a month later

- and the Supervisor has confirmed he can access those details if he wants to anyway, via my current account bank switch in Sep. 

 

From a Data Protection aspect, I don't believe one bank is allowed to "check" the status of another's customer account details.

 

The Supervisor insisted the reason for needing my new account number is to "carry out money-laundering checks" . With respect, Big Brother aside, the source of the funds is Lloyds themselves!

I believe this is an OTT misuse of their powers

 

Hi BankFodder

- the amount in question is peanuts, relatively - £29 rounded up!

 

As I said, I'm now digging my heels in on principle alone! What I do with the money is of ABSOLUTELY NO INTEREST of Lloyds and they DO NOT HAVE ANY NEED TO KNOW this information.

Kind Regards.

 

Hi BankFodder,

my apologies, I hadn't read your second thread!

 

I've been with Lloyds since being allocated this account after the 2013 split from 'Lloyds TSB' (formed in 1985).

 

Formerly I was just with TSB since 1965 until Lloyds merger!

Over the last few years I've had SO many reasons to raise complaints about their unfair treatment of their customers - and each has been upheld.

 

The final straw for me was when they treated their Trustcard customers so abysmally, whereby they gave less than 2 months notice to use up all of the Trustcard points they'd accumulated; they LIED and maintained they only had to give 2 mths.

 

Many thousands of customers lost 1000's of points due to this - and NEVER realised Lloyds lack of integrity. For those who pursued their complaint, we established that they were actually bound to have given 6 months notice!

 

Some of us got compensation as redress - and for the unspent points. Lloyds NEVER disclosed the truth to all of their affected customers - hence no consistent treatment for all! You're right when you refer to BULLIES!

 

 

I'd always been going to close ALL my accounts with Lloyds this year, which I did. Re: my C/Card a/c, I waited until my Cashback anniversary in Nov. when I was told I'd receive the refund.

 

Subsequently, I was advised  I had to wait until they credited my C/Card account, which was on 30/12/22. I closed my C/Card a/c on 21/11/22 regardless, although Lloyds "keep it open" for c 3 mths thereafter. So, the £28.98 is the earned Cashback sitting as a credit on my C/Card account (I no longer have their current a/c, so they can't "transfer" it there).  

 

I'd be interested as to how you can help me, please?

Thanks in advance. KR's.

Standby for a further reply later, but in the meantime, I reiterate what my site team colleague has already said that it's a very small amount of money to take a huge amount of trouble about .

 

I think you should reflect carefully about whether you want to do this. They could be better ways to spend your time.

 

In terms of standing up for principles, that's why this forum exists. But on the other hand, it's a shame that you closed your account.

 

If you really wanted to assert yourself then the way to do it would have been to have kept your account open with a smaller amount of money in there and that gives you a little bit of leverage over the bank and also costs them some effort .

 

The bank prefers but the customers who consider are troublesome, go away and become customers of other banks.

 

Much better to open an account elsewhere and use that as your main account, but keep your old account alive. You never know you might need it .

 

And if you really think that one bank is better than another, then you should probably consider some talking therapy somewhere.

Incidentally, have you tried at all to simply go into the bank and ask for the money in cash?

Hi BankFodder,

 

I'll wait until I receive Lloyds letter, then was considering either

 

i) asking the bank for cash, as you suggested (which I think is highly UNLIKELY, based on their latest dictat)

OR

ii) attempting an online purchase to use the credit - which may/not work - since the account currently reads: £28.98 current balance BUT "Available credit - £NIL [Credit limit £500]".

 

When I closed my C/Card account, Lloyds automatically reduced the Credit limit within it to just the £500.

 

The financial incentive to "switch" current accounts (to a Building Society)  meant closing my existing Lloyds Current a/c as a pre-condition of the Switch.

 

I'm retired;

I'm a devil simply for FAIR/JUST TREATMENT, however must time it will take up!

 

Q) What right do you feel Lloyds has to require the information? You did appear to agree it didn't have any right, in your earlier thread.
